White 600d paint?
#1
Hey all,

I originally thought my van was just a solid white paint with no clear coat/lacquer but after polishing with a strong compound and a black sponge I'm not seeing any white paint transer leading me to believe it's lacquered Confusedcratch:

Any ideas? it's a 2001 X reg.

I'm also a mobile valeter Smile

What year is yours? I might scratch a bit in a hidden area to see what I'm getting.

My van is a 2002, in white, I too have polished mine with a machine as the paint was so flat, it looked matt!!

He now shines better than most vans I see, not bad to say he's nearly ten years old. There is no clear coat on mine, although, when i had my new front bumper painted, it was clear coated.

The guy who did it was explaining about new water based paints, and the need to clear coat them.
